Christian Thoughts

“You are what you think” is an often used phrase with a serious meaning. The idea probably stems from Proverbs 23:7. This week we will look at what Paul wrote about what Christians should think about. Come and see if your thinking measures up to Paul’s criteria.

Lifting Up In Prayer

When picking up heavy things, we have all been told to lift with your knees (instead of your back). Getting on your knees used to be a phrase to describe prayer. With all the heavy concerns of life, maybe we should start by lifting them with prayer. That is exactly what Paul would advise. Pray about it!

Occasionally I have heard of two deer found dead with their antlers stuck together. Their conflict led to their deaths. What happens when there is disagreement in the church? Paul addressed a church conflict in his Philippian letter. Let’s learn from him this Sunday.

A Different Citizenship

Christians have always had to face the issue of acceptance. To become a Christian means that you will no longer fit in the sinful world around you. So we should quit trying to belong and accept that we are different! This Sunday we will look at Paul’s take on this issue. Let’s pray about this.

Learning to Howl

“He who lives with wolves will learn to howl.” –Italian proverb. This Philippians sermon this Sunday is going to be about spiritual influence. Who is teaching you to howl? Who are you teaching to howl? Who are the wolves in your life? Pray about it.
